ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors

School counselors face ethical and legal challenges every day covering areas such as confidentiality issues to records maintenance, from duty of care to sexual harassment issues. A school counselor's legal and ethical questions can spring up from every corner. The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) provides a number of resources and services to help school counselors meet these legal and ethical challenges as comprehensively as possible.

ASCA's Ethical Standards for School Counselors (PDF linked below) are the basis of ASCA's ethical program and the guidelines for our school counseling program at Gibson Technical Center.

Please contact the School Counselor if you have any questions or concerns.
